What to Expect
Acupuncture: We utilize sterile, single use filiform needles. Acupuncture is known to stimulate endorphins to assist in pain relief, regulate hormones and stimulate the body’s own healing functions.
New patients should plan for approximately 90 minutes for the first visit. We will do an in-depth intake to get the full perspective and determine the root cause(s). We will develop a treatment plan based on the information gathered and taking into consideration what will work within the patient’s current lifestyle. Chronic conditions typically require a longer course of treatment, while acute conditions can be treated more frequently over a shorter period of time.
(please do not come to your appointment on an empty stomach; a regularly scheduled meal or small snack will suffice)
Once inserted, needles will be left in for 20-30 minutes to allow for them to have full effect on the body and meridian system.
Return patients should plan for approximately 60 minutes for return visits. We have the options of 30 minute cupping only, herbal formulation consultation, and 30 minute acupuncture only appointments. All appointments can include but are not limited to cupping, moxabusion, writing of herbal formulations, supplement/herbal recommendation, gua sha, massage, guided mediation and Qi Gong.
